Jess Hilarious Apologizes for Saying She Felt ‘Threatened’ by Sikh Men

A tearful Jess Hilarious took to Instagram to post a video in which she apologizes for saying she felt “threatened” after seeing four Sikh men board an airplane she was also getting on. “I’m not sure if these particular individuals that were on the plane are aware of my actions by now. Either way, I would love to apologize personally to them first, for my insensitive and ignorant behavior,” the comedian said. “Sadly, I had no knowledge of the tragedy in New Zealand and so after my video, which doesn’t in any way excuse my behavior. I already know that. Ain’t nothing excuses it. But it opened up my eyes to a matter of ignorance as a habit that usually invokes hate. I refuse to teach spread or be an advocate for hatred. I just want to make people laugh. Bear with me. I’m still learning. And when I say, I’m still learning, I was unaware of Sikhs, as well. A lot of them reached out to me, educated me on who they are and what they stand for and how they help the world in different ways. I didn’t know that. I’m ignorant to a lot of shit.”
